As the use of e-cigarettes increases and vaping becomes more visible, whether it be via advertising, television programs or movies, or through personal contact, it is important that we keep informed and educated on this emerging issue.
We are currently conducting community consultation to try and understand the youth vaping space across the mid north coast. We are keen to hear from young people, as well as organisations and agencies who work with young people.
If you’re aged 12-24 years, we would like to know your thoughts on youth vaping by completing a short survey. All responses are anonymous and the information shared will help inform a local and collaborative approach to youth vaping. You can access the survey link here.
